In just its second race back from a four-month spell, Deniliquin-owned Leveraction blitzed the field to win Race 8 at the Sandown Racecourse on Wednesday.May 9, 2014 11:28am
Deniliquin owned Leveraction equalled its biggest prize packet for a single race when it won at Sandown Racecourse on Wednesday afternoon.
In its second race back from a four-month spell, the five year-old gelding dominated the $35,000 Le Pine Funerals 1300m race to win by 1 lengths.
Formerly a Queensland horse, Leveraction is owned by Deniliquin’s Wayne Campbell and sons Tony and Jeff, and brother-in-law Doug Adamson.
Jockey Chris Symons was in the saddle for Wednesday’s win, which was Leveraction’s fifth from 32 starts.
Symons steered the gelding from the fourth barrier to a classy win from Red Corner with Smarty Mac in fourth.
Amazingly, Leveraction was paying $18.60 for the win.
The win follows on from some strong runs at Moonee Valley and Flemington at the end of last year, and the $35,000 Murray Malley sprint final at Mildura in October.
Trainer Daryl Archard said he is now looking to the $100,000 Swan Hill Cup (1600m) on June 8 for Leveraction, which has won $80,000 since joining the Echuca stables.
‘‘He had a bit of devil in him, but since he’s been up home, he’s been an absolute gem,” Archard said.
‘‘We train him out of a paddock and he just loves it.’’
